Monday, November 13, Membership meeting at 7:00 PM at the Science and Discovery Center of Northwest Florida
(308 Airport Rd, Panama City, FL).
Program " An overview of the Emerald Coast Regional Envirothon" presented by Dale Cronwell
The Envirothon is an outdoor high school age student academic team competition.  Dale will briefly cover the history of the "international" Envirothon which is the parent organization of the local event.  He will describe the origins of the local regional event; how a group of volunteers run it; where and when it is held; the intent of the program; and what happens at the event.  After his presentation he plans to “challenge” the audience with some typical ECRE test questions and maybe give away a few ECRE t-shirts.

Dale is a member of the Emerald Coast Regional Envirothon.  He is also Scout Master of Troop 310, Lake Sands District and an annual contributor to the Tyndall Air Force Base International Coastal Cleanup.  He has participated in numerous conservation initiatives in Bay County including the successful effort to gain funding for an ADA compliant kayak launch in Millville.
